Gold Hill, North Carolina

  The Village of Gold Hill, NC Such a quaint little village, please be sure to stop on by. Make a point to join them for their festival, amazing how quiet it was there. Not much traffic. Most of the businesses were not open, but it was fun to peek in their windows, wondering what they might have to sell??! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ; 

Mint Hill Historical Society

Mint Hill Historical Society 7601 Matthews Mint Hill Road, Mint Hill, NC "A For Sale sign hammered into the front lawn of the old country doctor's building was all the motivation needed to begin the Mint Hill Historical Society. 21 citizens signed the charter in 1985 with the purpose of preserving the history of the area..." When we were visiting the lady working there that day was telling us that no one was really visiting these days, little ones from different local schools were not visiting, the virus has really put a huge rock in their puddle, hoping that will change again real soon for them, I know they thrive with visitors. It is so fun to see all these historical buildings, really enjoyed our short spot by there. Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Buffalo Spring

  My Grandma Ruby would come here throughout her life to fill up her jugs of this water, I know she appreciated our help carrying them to and from the car and house. My hubby did try it the day we were visiting. I don't recall it being good or bad, just something that Grandma always had done. I never realized the story I wish to share it with you today ... I think they have dressed (with paint and cleaning up the place??!) it up a bit since when I was young ... adding these plaques of all of this important, very cool information: "Early History In 1728, a survey party led by William Byrd II visited these springs. In his diary, he wrote that the spring water was "...what Adam drank in Paradise ..." by the help of which we perceived our appetites to mend, our slumber to sweeten, the stream of life to run cool and peaceable in veins, and if ever we dreamt of women, they were kind."  Byrd sighted a buffalo near the springs, hence the name Buffalo Springs.
